The Evaluation of Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Approaches (PPA) is an experimental study focused on assessing the implementation and impacts of innovative strategies and untested approaches for preventing teenage pregnancy.
This spring, FYSB partnered with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and U.S. Department of Education in an ongoing collaboration to support disconnected youth in reaching their educational goals.
One of the goals of the APP Program is to provide vulnerable youth with STI and HIV/AIDS prevention education. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, youth ages 13 to 24 account for more than 1 in 5 of all new HIV cases; and more than half of youth living with HIV don’t know they have it. FYSB encourages PREP grantees to become familiar with the HHS Office of Adolescent Health’s Adolescent HIV/AIDS Prevention National Resource Center, which provides innovative content to empower youth-serving providers and peer leaders to meet the needs of youth at highest risk for HIV/AIDS.
